If a mom is over weight at the start of pregnancy then the excess weight can actually be shifted to the Pregnancy. This means that the mom does not gain weight and the Pregnancy development is normal. By control weight gain your doctor means to avoid junk food. If exercise is permitted then yes that can be done but the aim of exercise during pregnancy is not weight loss or weight control but toning and keeping fit.
